University of Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering One of 10 To Receive HP Innovations Grants

The University at Albany’s nanocollege was one of 10 higher education institutions in the country to receive an HP Innovations in Education grant.

The College of NanoScale Science and Engineering joins schools such as Clemson University and the University of Illinois in receiving the HP grant, which is designed to address the need for more students to pursue and complete high-tech undergraduate degree programs in such areas as engineering, computer science and information systems.

UAlbany’s NanoCollege will receive an HP award package of HP technology, cash, and professional services valued at more than $286,000. The school will receive wireless HP Tablet PCs, wide-format HP DesignJet printers, and remote access to HP Blade Workstations from anywhere on campus.

UAlbany said the grant will allow the nanocollege to develop a “virtual laboratory complex” built on HP’s server and tablet PC hardware and software technology.

Alain Kaloyeros, the nanocollege’s CEO, said only 5 percent of the proposals received funding.

HP is investing more than $17 million in mobile technology, cash and professional development internationally as part of the global 2009 HP Innovations in Education grant initiative.
